TALLAHASSEE -- Gov. Rick Scott released a statement regarding ObamaCare going to the the U.S. Supreme Court, saying in part he hopes that it is repealed by the end of next year.
“Today’s news that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments next March in the Florida lawsuit against ObamaCare is a tremendous step in the fight against the job-killing federal mandate. With this news, I am hopeful that ObamaCare will be repealed by the end of 2012 and we can put a stop to further tax increases, additional job losses, the inability of many Americans to keep their existing health insurance, and the rationing of healthcare, all of which ObamaCare threatens to do.
"I applaud Attorney General Pam Bondi for leading the effort to protect Floridians’ freedom to make their own healthcare choices and I am also grateful that former Attorney General Bill McCollum had the foresight to initiate this lawsuit.
"I look forward to the day we can move past this Big Government mandate and begin making the meaningful, and constitutional, changes that are necessary to improve our healthcare system.”
